case they will only look at the facts to what happened yesterday. we in the public are allowed to use common sense, take the blinders off and three women since 2005 made domestic violence allegations against george zimmerman. one as recently as september, and that's his estranged wife shelley. it's not often they conspire together to come up with the same story. probably shelley and the girlfriend want nothing to do with each other but say two months apart he was pointing the gun at them, not just holding the gun, pointing the gun at them, threatening them and making them leave their own home. these are similar allegations. is there anyone that continues to think it's safe for george zimmerman to be at large and there aren't concerns? i think that's a reasonable conclusion for us to draw this is really a problem person. >> it's not just members of the public and journalist who can make that inference. it is true that as a technical legal matter, if the case goes to the jury those other matters are not admissible but prosecutors can sit there and say, you know what? we have discretion.
